The Blacklist Season 9: Waiting on Mierce Xiu to Reappear

It was evident earlier this season that Mierce had a big influence on Reddington during his time away from the Task Force. We believe the two had a bond that went beyond any single aspect, and we believe there was true love and concern on both sides.

Mierce is a healer, and she wants Raymond to be healthy and happy. Mierce, on the other hand, believed that by returning to the criminal world, he was losing a piece of himself that he had worked so hard to acquire. She couldn't bear witnessing his anguish, so she left. However, the flowers, which remain a potent symbol to this day, serve as a continual reminder of her presence.

The Blacklist Season 9: What to Expect Next

Whether or whether Mierce reappears in the present, there is always the possibility that she will appear in flashbacks. We had the aforementioned Park flashback on Friday, and we've already seen stories like this with Ressler and Dembe - is there any possibility we'll see one with Reddington as well? We could also discover more about his origin tale from Mierce and Weecha.

Of course, no one can confirm if Karina Arroyave will return in the near future - the actress herself stated earlier today on Twitter that she is unable to react to everyone who inquires about the character's future. We're still hoping she'll return, but we'll have to wait and see.

The Blacklist Season 9 Episode 12 Air Date

At the time of writing, the plan looks to be to release it on Friday, Mar. 18.

Season 9 has also attracted 22 million viewers across linear and digital platforms, according to NBC; keep in mind that this does not include viewers who are watching on other networks across the world or who are watching earlier seasons on Netflix. To put it another way, this play is doing a fantastic job for itself.

For the time being, let's count down the days till The Blacklist Season 9 Episode 12 airs on television.
